Sunpreme in Partnership with Tigo Deploys Smart Bifacial PV Panels at One of California's Largest Contiguous Solar Carport Structures in the Bay Area
Bringing Innovative Technology, Superior Lifetime Yields, and the Safest Long-Term Energy Investments
Sunpreme, Inc. a global solar PV manufacturer and Tigo Energy, Inc., a pioneer of the smart modular MLPE platform, are pleased to announce the completion of a commercial solar installation at a shopping center located in the California Bay Area. The system consists of commercial carport and rooftop installations totaling 750kW. The system includes Sunpreme's award winning GxB380 SM Bifacial PV Panels integrated with Tigo TS4-L (Long Strings) Optimizers.
Sunpreme's GxB380 SM Bifacial PV Panels were chosen for maximum energy generation and robust product reliability. The DC-to-DC module integration with Tigo allows for longer PV string designs, panel-level monitoring, and UL-certified rapid safety shutdown. With Tigo's Reclaimed Energy feature, the solar system owners will be able to track and calculate the exact ROI from Sunpreme's optimized modules, while providing a centerpiece to the holistic approach of environmental stewardship.
"Providing the added benefits of optimization for a local project of this magnitude is a welcomed opportunity," says Zvi Alon, Chairman & CEO at Tigo. "Our TS4's unprecedented reliability in the field is the reason we match Sunpreme's industry-leading warranty for bifacial panels - both have the best lifetime energy yields."
"We are privileged to have collaborated on this impressive Bay Area commercial installation. Sunpreme's Bifacial Smart PV technology with Tigo's MLPE platform was the perfect match for such a large system. The GxB380 SM brand is an industry game changer offering our customers the safest long-term energy investments.
